In this fascinating interview Federico Faggin, designer of the first commercial microprocessor and pioneer in the movement to base mathematical theory on consciousness, urges science to embrace consciousness to explain the weirdness of quantum physics, and use it as the instrument of scientific investigation. “There need no longer be a duality between mind and matter,” he says. “With consciousness you can reach reality from the inside.” He makes a startling suggestion - that matter is the ink with which consciousness writes its own self-knowing.
How can there be intelligence without consciousness?
In this exclusive interview with Dr. Alan Wallace we discuss consciousness, mathematics, practicing deep sleep states and meditation as preparation for dying consciously.
In this inspiring talk, the mathematician Edward Frenkel speaks about the beauty and elegance of mathematics
Donald Hoffman reminds us that we can predict people's choices up to seven seconds before they are conscious of making that choice.
This video is about Bell's Theorem, one of the most fascinating results in 20th century physics.
Stuart Hameroff, co-founder of the Toward a Science of Consciousness conference, follows a brief overview…
Imagine for a moment being in a church where mathematics groups meet regularly to solve geometry problems…
It's not only a big deal; it's the biggest deal of all.
The most famous case study in science, prior to Freud, was published in 1728 in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society by the English surgeon William Cheselden, who attended Newton in his final illness.
Is math an invention of the human brain? Or does math exist in some abstract world, with humans merely discovering its truths? The debate has been raging since the time of the ancient Greeks.
There are many things that affect our mental health, from work-related stress to past traumas to whether or not we meditate each day.
The idea that the universe splits into multiple realities with every measurement has become an increasingly popular proposed solution to the mysteries of quantum mechanics.
The Born rule, which connects the math of quantum theory to the outcomes of experiments, has been derived from simpler physical principles.
These black hole opposites would spew energy, be impossible to enter, and might even answer some of the universe’s fundamental questions.
It was 18 months ago that I stumbled upon a short video on YouTube talking about the basics of Quantum Field Theory.
Billions of years ago, an iron nucleus forged in another galaxy was flung into space at close to the…
On dark summer nights, away from city lights, I love to stargaze and imagine that I am dancing with the stars.
Quantum field theory has made some incredibly accurate predictions about the universe, but it has also made some of the worst.
The “fittest” quantum properties make the most copies of themselves.
Scientists have discovered a distinct turbulent fluid pattern, surprisingly close to Kolmogorov’s equation, hidden in many of Van Gogh’s paintings.
Astronomer Natalie Batalha embodies a planetary sense of what “love” is and means.
Two realities can exist at the same time, at least in the quantum world, suggests a new study.
Time is a contentious topic in physics. Some physicists, such as Julian Barbour, argue that it doesn’t even exist. Others, such as Carlo Rovelli, hold that it arises as a secondary effect of deeper quantum processes.
The true extent of da Vinci’s Renaissance mind is captured in the surviving notebooks...
Since childhood I have been fascinated by holograms. The reason was the science fiction movie Star Wars and in 1984 I watched it for the first time.
In physics, time exists but it has no preferred direction.
For well over a century, scientists have been wrestling with what quantum mechanics has been revealing to us about fundamental reality
When we ask ourselves why we think time exists, most of us would say: because we see everything changing, always.
